There are four very interesting newcomers set to line up here so this won't be straightforward for BUSKER, but he deserves the vote following three steadily progressive efforts so far. Godolphin's runner has experience of the surface having just been denied at Wolverhampton and he's just been unlucky to come up against potentially decent rivals the last twice. That could well be the case again if support arrives for any of the debutants, pick of whom on paper looks to be Gentleman Is Back. John Gosden has had a few debut winners of late and this colt is the half-brother of a winner on the surface although his draw isn't ideal. Nor is it for speedily-bred Divine Rule, while Brezza Di Mare is likely to improve for this experience. Boxeur Des Rues should be suited by a mile at this stage and with the Haggas yard in form is also interesting, with the others to have raced having shown little.
